Valhalla Club

HEEL SECTION (Episode 22) with Jan Ohrstrom

Some people fall into the world of professional wrestling, Jan Ohrstrom made it his life's work.  When other kids were looking for colleges in high school, Ohrstrom was more preoccupied trying to find a school of hard knocks that might get him on the pathway toward performing in the squared circle.

Of course, that pathway would take a series of twists and turns that would be put on a temporary hold when Ohrstrom would enlist in the US Army. 

We get the opportunity to chat with Ohrstrom about how he came to help create the Valhalla Club documentary (along with our good pal Eddie Wittern who we previously interviewed last month -- you can listen to those episodes HERE and HERE).

We get to hear how Ohrstrom met Wittern, his rookie years in the biz, how he was able to score a try out with the dubs, his on screen time with the black Power Ranger, and even hear why this documentary means so much to him.

Plus, we get to hear a little bit about the psychology of the guy who has evolved and found a clique to help him spread an important message about PTSD.

We highly encourage you guys to get behind the Valhalla Club documentary.  You can rent or purchase that movie right HERE.

And, just because we promised we would do this, here is the video of the black Power Ranger doing the dance that should captivate the masses.  

HEEL SECTION (Episode 21) with Eddie "El Guero" Wittern (Part 2)

LISTEN TO PART 1 HERE

In the second part of our exclusive interview with Eddie Wittern, we find out a lot more about the Valhalla Club documentary and how he uses the art of pro wrestling to help combat his PTSD.  Eddie goes into great detail about the way he and his co-stars felt during the premiere.

Aside from being a fascinating look at how a pro wrestler creates a character, our interview with "El Guero" gives an important look into the way our military combats PTSD.  It's the type of interview that's more than just hearing about the biz, it's giving a vet the time to listen and share his story (something we can't thank him enough for doing with us).

We also ask about how Eddie came up with using the clown make up, the specific style of moves he uses, a big name jiu-jitsu practitioner that he almost had an MMA match with, and discover why Russians seem to truly love the guy.  

It's an awesome discussion that is a worthy follow up to a podcast that truly lives up to our first installment with the guy.

Also, we'd like to thank Grappler Beard and Body Soap for making this episode happen.

HEEL SECTION (Episode 20) with Eddie "El Guero" Wittern

Some lives are meant to be larger than life.  Sure, when we're kids we may dream of becoming the next Hulk Hogan, but we don't always grow up to be 6'6 and have 24 inch pythons, brother.  That didn't stop Eddie Wittern.  With a story that spans all the way back to training with a certified legend in the business back in 2002, "El Guero" is the kind of guy whose travels have taken him all over the world -- in multiple combat sports.
